"If you will it, dude, it is no dream..."

one of my very favourite places on earth, my high school home, the mayfair theatre here in ottawa is holding a number of fundraisers to upgrade to a, now sadly necessary, digital projector. to help out i'm contributing a couple of perks to their indigogo campaign. the first is the above portrait of walter sobchak which, i think, will really tie the room together. the second is a painted portrait, by me, of the movie character of your choice!

please consider helping them out. as an added bonus (and proof that the theatre is run by some really great guys) their target goal of $15,000 will go straight to the projector, should they go over that amount the next $5,000 goes to another piece of necessary equipment, and everything above THAT amount will go straight to the RED CROSS!

UPDATE: walter is sold!!! thanks. please check out the site for more.

... is the name of a very nifty comics project being put together by j. torres, that i am very happy to be a part of. it's an anthology of all-new, all-ages, all-canadian characters and adventures showcasing  the work of Adrian Alphona (Runaways), Andy B. (Kill Shakespeare), J. Bone (Super Friends), Jack Briglio (Scooby Doo), Scott Chantler (Two Generals), ME!!! (Hulk: Season One), Agnes Garbowska (Girl Comics), Faith Erin Hicks (Adventure Time), Tim Levins (Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes), Ramon Perez (A Tale of Sand), Ron Salas (28 Days Later), Jay Stephens (Secret Saturdays), J. Torres (Teen Titans Go), and Howard Wong (After the Cape).

if this sounds like something you'd like (or to rephrase: this is something you'd like) you can support our indiegogo campaign to bring it to life! (go support our indiegogo campaign)

there are lots of neat things up for grabs, including this original painting featuring the characters HAL and VALIANT, that j. torres and i created for the book!

go. give. support.

a once crowded sky "artist's edition"...

yesterday i posted my original cover painting for tom king's "A ONCE CROWDED SKY", so today i thought i'd post a few interior pages "artist's edition" style.

i'll post some more next week.


buy the book.

a once crowded sky cover...

as some of you may know, a while back i was asked by tom king to illustrate his novel "A ONCE CROWDED SKY".  the cover was to be based on an old painting of superman i'd done.  i was both extremely flattered and incredibly daunted.  after a lot of kicks at it, though, i think we came up with something really nice.


halfway through the project simon & schuster asked if i could make it into a wrap around cover. ultimately, though, they decided to scrap that aspect, but if anyone's interested here's the back cover in all it's glory. (minus an inch wide strip to join the two together. my scanner wasn't quite big enough-- theirs was)

...exciting stuff, huh?

buy the book.

some recent commissions...

i've been spending this and last month burning through my somewhat wayward commissions list. here's what i've got so far. hope you like them (and that the commissioners still want them...)


(ps... if you're the commissioner of this last herbie piece, please email me. thank you.)

june monsters...

hey kids,

with HULK season 1 behind me, i've spent much of june learning how to enjoy drawing again... with mixed results. as usual in such cases, though, my successes came in the form of monsters.

ottawa comicon sketches...

just a quick sampling of some of the sketches i did at this last weekend's first ottawa comicon.

despite a couple of very minor birthing pains the show was a great success! big thanks to the organizers and everyone who stopped by and said hi.

(except that one guy...)

i've posted a few shots of how HULK SEASON ONE is coming along to twitter. so, in the absence of anything else i can show, i thought i'd round them up here.

and, yes, bruce banner has an otter box.
